next I paste this image as a new selection..and
click on rotate 90 degrees...I do this several times...each time rotating
and lining them up alone the new image.
Once I have this completely filled...I then save it as my bar...
Bring is back..always remembering to click on 16 million colors..and I fill in the outsides with the color that is the same as my background...and begin doing my finishing touches..see far left .
I repeat this on the right side..identical to the left and bingo..you now have a bar to go with your background.
